of the things they knew was that these groups were present in benghazi, they were well-organized, they have an infrastructure to them. they also knew of the presence of al qaeda sympathizers in the area, pockets of sympathizers. they also knew -- and we found this out from an intelligence source, there was an intelligence cable 48 hours before this attack took place that warned about the presence of this anti-muslim film on the internet. not only that, but that they had seen an up tick in the traffic visiting that site, that obviously this is a sign that this is gaining more popularity. cnn also found out that they had further indications that parts of this film were shown on egyptian television. that was according to an fbi memo that cnn was able to get a hold of. so all the clues were sort of there. now piecing them together was a different story. u.s. sources have told us, intelligence sources, that there was no actionable intelligence. as a matter of fact, the administration has been very open about coming out and saying that. so some clues were there, pulling them all together is a tou
planning or organization. they are looking at the scene just outside of the consulate in benghazi. tonight, "360" as obtained exclusi exclusi exclusive information about the events leading up to his killing. he talked about being worried about the security threats there. he specifically mentioned the rise in islamic extremism and our source tells us he emailed a journalist in the wake of the bombing in june. he wrote, maybe you should travel to bengazi in light of what appearing to be going on. he wrote and i quote, you should east to benghazi to check out the situation there which appears the be heating up. what we don't know is why, given all that ambassador stevens thought why he travelled with such a light security detail and why he was allowed to? did he want it that way or did the risks go unheeded and he and his people die because of it? at this point we simply don't know. senator john mccain supported the president's steps to oust khadafy, and the president's steps taken since then. i spoke to senator mccain earlier today. senator mccain, a source familiar with the ambassador's thi
.s. personnel have been evacuated from benghazi, libya. and very small skeletal staffs in tripoli and also yemen. but the u.s. is also looking at other countries. we have ten countries that you just mentioned where there are u.s. protests. clearly they're looking at sudan right now. right now they're not evacuating people. again, they're saying stay tuned. make sure you're registered with the embassy. right now everyone's relying on commercial travel to get out. the roads are open. everything's open, wolf. right now it's just seems to be localized just at these u.s. embassies and not kind of chaos spreading throughout the country. >> these are live pictures we're showing our viewers now from tahrir square in cairo. not very far from the u.s. embassy. you've been there, i've been there. it's only a few -- maybe a block away. but they have apparently established all sorts of barriers around the u.s. embassy. it's a huge embassy too. >> it's a huge embassy. it's like a complex, if you will. even as you have the setback in these reinforcements, they're asking the local government in the last couple
in the wake of those protests. our senior international correspondent arwa damon is in benghazi, libya. >> reporter: the events that unfolded on friday in benghazi most certainly, at least at this point in time, seem to be having a ripple-on effect. to begin with what happened on friday, in the afternoon, pro-democracy demonstrators took to the streets demanding an end to the existence of armed militias, demanding that the government forces, the army and the police, be the only authority on the streets of the country. following that, at night we saw hundreds of individuals storming one of the headquarters of a known militant group in benghazi. after they initially managed to peacefully pretty much take over that location, they then set their sights on a second area. this, however, turned out to be a battalion that is, in fact, endorsed by the government. it did result in some clashes that caused injuries and casualties, and then the army eventually in the early morning hours of the morning, moving in, especially trying to secure massive weapons, depots that did exist there. we arrived
-cocked. part of why governor romney looked bad responding to the tragedy in benghazi, he seemed like he was too political and too opportunistic. it could be here that the president was a little too cool. i don't think in his defense for a minute he would say that the murder of an ambassador and other american personnel, much less all the other folks who have died in that region, is just a bump in the road. i think what he's trying to do is show everybody that we're on this, the united states is doing well and you know, i think that's a kind of typical no drama obama response. >> alex, is that what it is, the cool head of the president? >> i think there's something to that, but i think there's also a little more, and that is that this president's great strength is his intellect. he lives inside his head and his ideas. and part of it is he doesn't really feel your pain like paul's former boss, bill clinton, but he can memorize a study about it, you know. people are distant from this president. there's a certain sense of arrogance to this white house that they're just detached from it and i think
